Woman Goes To Auction To Watch Her House Be Sold. Good Samaritan Buys It Back For Her
September 20, 2015
Tracy Orr couldn't afford to make payments on her home after she lost her job. She had even sold $12,000 worth of property and paid the mortgage company thinking it would stop the foreclosure - but it didn't work.
Tracy decided to go the auction with her family, but could hardly keep it together as she watched the home she took out an $80,000 loan on get bid on by strangers.

That's when she met chipper Marilyn Mock. Marilyn sat beside Tracy and began talking to her.
"Are you here to buy a house?" Marilyn Mock asked. Tracy burst into tears. "That's my house," she said. Tracy pointed to a space on the auction brochure. There wasn't even a photo of the house, just a listing.
Marilyn slipped away and bought Tracy's house for $30,000.
"She didn't know I was doing it," Marilyn says. "I just kept asking her if [her home] was worth it, and she just kept crying. She probably thought I was crazy, 'Why does this woman keep asking me that?'"
"She said, 'I did this for you. I'm doing this for you,;" Tracy says. "When it was all done, I was just in shock."
